Caixa Forum Palma de Mallorca
2 October 2012 - 13 January 2013
From October 2nd Caixa Forum Palma de Mallorca opens the Viewpoints exhibition: Abstraction versus Realism that is part of a collaboration agreement between the Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona (MACBA) and theFoundation La Caixa.
Tensions between the abstract art and figurative art have been consistent in the twentieth century. Miradas Cruzadas draws attention to and contrasts these concepts and looks at different ways in which artists from two different historical contexts have moved closer to reality: The abstract art of the fifties and sixties and realistic art of the eighties and nineties.
Works by Antoni Tapies, Jean Dubuffet, Manolo Millares, Antonio Saura Xavier, Miserachs Palazuelo, Eduardo Chillida and Jorge Oteiza are in the exhibition.
